Alternate Energy Holdings Inc., an investor-funded company seeking to build an advanced third-generation nuclear power plant in Elmore County, Idaho, has signed an agreement with Source Capital Group Inc. to raise money for the project.

 The funds will cover land, water rights and engineering services to obtain Nuclear Regulatory Commission approval to construct and operate an advanced nuclear plant in Elmore County, Idaho, estimated to total some $70 million. Every company that has undertaken the NRC application process has successfully completed it and received a construction/operation license.

This is a major step in the process to bring the first commercial nuclear plant to Idaho and the first advanced nuclear plant to the western US that is so in need of clean, low cost base load power to sustain industry and agriculture,” said company CEO Don Gillispie. “We are very pleased to have a company with Source Capital’s experience in raising funds for energy projects on board.”

Source Capital’s Investment Banking Department has extensive experience in energy transactions including Initial Public Offerings, Private Placements, Project Finance, Master Limited Partnerships, Special Purpose Vehicles and Reverse Mergers. Source One has helped companies in traditional fossil exploration and production, as well as a broad spectrum of alternative and renewable energy companies, including Rock Energy and Enerlume Energy Corporation. The company is capable of providing financing from $5 million to $500 million. 

“Mr. Gillispie and his team have an extensive background in the nuclear power industry and have developed a compelling plan to create a new and much needed energy source for the western United States,” said Richard Kreger, Senior Managing Director of Investment Banking for Source Capital. ‘We are excited to bring the merits of their vision to investors in an effort to ensure the success of this worthy project.” 

David Harris, President of Source Capital Group, Inc., affirmed that “clean, low cost energy is one of the most vital areas of focus for our nation’s future.  Source is pleased to have the opportunity to leverage its financial services expertise in the energy sector to raise capital for AEHI and this important initiative.”

 A former offer from Silverleaf Partners of Utah was only applicable to a former proposed site in Owyhee County. Also, several large financial institutions have indicated an interest in financing the construction phase.  

The Elmore County Commission in April heard more than four hours of testimony, most in favor of AEHI’s request to rezone land for the plant, with over 500 supporters packing the hearing room. On Monday, June 8, the commission will discuss and possibly vote on the rezone.
